Monsgeek M1 QMK DIY Kit

Not just another 75% aluminum DIY Kit.


MonsGeek strictly manages to reduce unnecessary costs through its advanced supply chain to deliver the best value for users.


MonsGeek comes with a PC plate as standard and offers other plates separately. We also offer additional tape and teflon pads for potential mod.


M1 will be available directly, through our partners and from other mainstream shopping platforms as accessibility is our ultimate goal.


PCB Mount/Screw-in stabilizers tend to vibrate less. M1 uses Akko stabilizers (un-assembled) with nylon housing in case users want to lubricate.

South-facing PCB

The south-facing PCB of the M1 avoids causing interference with Cherry profile keycaps, offering more compatibility and flexibility.

Programmable Knob

Designed to enhance your creative workflow, the premium rotary encoder allows you to easily customize your favorite keysand macros on the knob through the VIA/QMK software.

Golden Accent 

Adding a touch of class and elegance, we opted to add a beautiful golden accent so that no matter which way you look at it, you’ll fall in love over and over again. 

QMK / VIA Support

MonsGeek M1 supports VIA for cross-platform (Linux/Mac/Windows) advanced keyboard configuration.

This feature is exclusively for international version of M1.

3mm Case Foam

Monsgeek has developed its own budget custom material that performs equally as well as poron.

*Disclaimer: Using thicker foam may reduce flex, whether to include it or not is down to your personal preference

PET Insulation Layer

A PET insulation layer has been added to the bottom case in order to prevent any short circuit issues. It’s rare for these issues to occur but we want to add extra protection.

Please note: This keyboard is a barebones keyboard and requires simple assembly. Switches and keycaps (sold separately).

The enter key of ISO UK only support 3-pin switches, other keys support 5-pin switches

Perfect as expected

I absolutely love this mechanical keyboard kit! The case and PCB are top-notch in terms of quality and design. The build process was a breeze, and the final result feels incredibly sturdy. Typing on this keyboard is a dream, with my akko blue switches and i got a perfect sound. A fantastic choice for anyone looking to build a custom mechanical keyboard.


Was easy to assemble and customize even though it was a first for me. Spare parts are a nice addition! Beautiful and amazing quality. Loved that I could choose switches for free, and it gave me the ultimate THOCK. Many RGB options and they look amazing with pudding keycaps.

Very good keyboard

The Monsgeek M1 is a very good kit to start a custom build.
The price is very good for this quality.

Quality of aluminium case is good. The keyboard come with tape and teflon pad for moding. The stabilizer is good too.

With Akko CS Wine White switches, xda pbt keycaps, Tempest Tape Mode and Force break mode, the sound is very nice.

The keyoboard is VIA compatible but you must use a fork from Akko (, not the official website.

TL:DR : very good keyboard to start a custom build.

Monsgeek M1

Akko gives a great service in ordering their products. The tracking app is highly appreciated and de goods always pass customs with ease.

The Monsgeek M1 is a great keyboard and with its weight it sits very sturdy on my desk.
It performs as expected and with de JWK T1 tactile switches it gives a nice soundprofile.
A few cons though ;
The pcb feels very stiff and I don't feel anything of the gaskets, there is no flex even when pushed hard.
I haven't managed to get a proper VIA connection with the standard app like I am used to with other boards. VIA doesn't recognise the PCB.
Also the online VIAL app doesn't recognize the pcb, even when resetting it to factory settings.
The only way to use VIA is online with :
Strangely enough I heard other users were able to connect it the traditional way.
It bothers me that I have to use an other way which doesn't has the ability to program macro's .

So it is a nice board but mine has flaws.


perfect to start custom keyboard in ISO FR
